A brand new Mucky Pup tale from this award-winning series.

Mucky Pup can never sit still, and he is never happier than when he's chasing something, or sniffing something out. That is how the trouble started. He had to check out the tin of green paint on the counter-top, and then it spilled all over him. Just to be really sure, he rolled in it as well! And then, he went to the barn and got covered in lots of straw. Now Mucky Pup was green with great clumps of straw sticking to his head, so it's hardly surprising that the donkey mistook him for a monster! Luckily Mucky Pup found his friend the piglet before any more harm was done, and they plunged into the stream together, washing everything off!


'This book features a character all children should be able to relate to relate to - a cheeky puppy who causes chaos but doesn't get caught. . . excellent action pictures. . .'

Nursey World

'...vigorously drawn by Ken in watercolour washes. This story rings a few bells, living as we do with four boys and two dogs, in a muddy farmyard bounded by a stream.'

Paul Stickland, Child Education

Well illustrated in water colour and ideal for those just learning to read.'

Joe Prospero, The Teacher

A lovely story with a huge amount to explore and enjoy in the illustrations. The only danger would be the inevitable quest for a Mucky Pup of their own.

Barbara Sherrard-Smith, School Librarian, Vol 53

This is a book full of chuckles and 'oohs' and 'aahs'.

Jack Ousbey, Carousel

Great fun with beautifully painted, very lively pictures.

Rosalind Kerven, Northern Echo
